Volunteer chaperone needed for Stansted CAB service

UTTLESFORD CAB urgently needs a volunteer ‘chaperone’ to support its advice service in Stansted Mountfitchet.

A trained adviser, based at Spangles Children’s/Youth Centre, Lower Street, operates an appointment-only CAB service on a fortnightly basis, Thursday 9.30am–12.30pm. This is specially valued in an area where many find transport to the main Uttlesford CAB offices at Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow difficult.

Volunteers are required to work in pairs for their own safety and assurance and the presence of a chaperone is vital for the Stansted service to run. The chaperone welcomes and settles each client while the adviser works through the morning’s appointments.

This would be the perfect volunteering position for someone who perhaps has mobility problems as they are required to do very little but be there and be friendly. It’s the golden opportunity to read a book and be useful all at the same time!

This is an important but stress-free role for a kind and discreet individual. The CAB welcomes all applications, if you are interested please call Kate Robson on 01799 526557 to arrange an interview. No training required, but a CRB check would be necessary.

You can call or email CAB for advice. If a face-to-face appointment is needed it can be organised in Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow, Thaxted or Stansted Mountfitchet.
